About Us

First State Bank & Trust Company has provided financials services for over 60 years as Fremont's only 100% locally-owned community bank. We began our work in Fremont in 1956 and take pride in the role we have played in the growth of our community.

One of our core strengths is as a preferred lender to small business. Due to our local ownership and management, we are able to evaluate opportunities in a timely manner and deliver decisions quickly. Many of our business relationships have spanned decades and we enter each new relationship with that same goal in mind.

We believe that education is paramount to the success of this community. That is why we developed First State Bank & Trust University, founded two bank in school programs, underwrite a financial literacy program in the Fremont high schools, sponsor dozens of classes through our program and provide annual hometown support scholarships that encourage our students to return to live and work in Fremont. We genuinely care about giving our neighbors and friends the tools they need to be successful.

Investing in Fremont is not just our tagline, it’s the way we do business.
